ComputersPutinI fucking hate the true flatspin argument, you all need to shut the fuck up. At this point in skiing what some of you call "whack flips" have been called flatspins for so long that's what they are, there are some people who can get much more flat but flat spin has become a blanket term for all of those axes. This would be like me saying that a switch up wasn't a true switch up because you spun 170º instead of 180º, it's stupid, pointless and makes people hate you.
No. You're so fucking wrong. JF Cusson did real flat spins on jumps way back in the fucking day that were dope as shit. Freeze had trick tips with sequences of this that maybe you need to go back and read. A flat spin is a flat spin. Dave Crichton popularized the alley oop flat in the pipe and that trick has not changed axis since.
An off axis back flip is now called a wack flip (out of spite for trying to call it a flat 3) but it should not be called a fucking flat 3. They are different tricks. Andy Mahre does real flat 3s. Watch IDEA. There are different names because there are different tricks and we need to differentiate between them.
Everyone calls it a flat 3 because of Pete Olenicks wack flip in Freeskier article about his sled skiing mission in Colorado back in 05ish. Fuck Freeskier and fuck the thought that a trick can change names because of ignorance when it is being named after an axis.
There is nothing wrong with doing a wack flip. Just know that it is not a flat spin.
Now let's get back on topic and give this guy props for doing a switch dub lincoln!
